Leith Meanwhile Project

The Leith Meanwhile project, whilst small in budget is big in impact. The project comprised the refurbishment of C-listed building, turning it into modern office space, as well as the transformation of the rear of the building with the creation of workspaces in shipping containers. An excellent example of our Strategic Partnering Services in action and providing paid training opportunities through construction social enterprise, Rebuild.

This is an amazing project which has had a huge amount of community involvement. This project will create much needed space for local artists and other creative entrepreneurs as well as providing valuable community space. It is also great to see training and job opportunities as part of the project.
